Rustom Music Review: Rustom stars Akshay Kumar, Ileana D'crozu and Esha Gupta in the lead roles. The music of the film is composed by Raghav Sachar, Jeet Ganguli, Ankit Tiwari and Arko. Lyrics are written by Manoj Muntashir and the production company is Zee Music.
The film does not have situational numbers except title track. The makers have tried to make a chartbuster album and have less resemblance to 1960's plot of the film. There are 6 original and four reprise songs in the album. Let's take a look at Rustom music review.
Tere Sang Yara:
Pakistani singer is back with the romantic track and he has done a tremendous job. The melody is dipped in romance and emotions, with heartfelt lyrics by Manoj Muntashir. It is one of the best romantic songs in recent times. (4/5)
It is the title track of the film which introduces the lead actor. The song has been brilliantly crooned by Sukriti Kakkar and composed by Raghav Sachar. However the pace was too fast at times and you did not get addicted to the song. It also reminds of you Aaj Ki Raat from Don. There is also a theme, Marathi and male version of the song which have nothing different to offer. (3/5)
The song takes a soothing start but soon it turns into a typical Ankit's style. The composition is pretty much simple and looks familiar to earlier tunes but still it is Ankit's voice which makes it extremely pleasant to listen. (3.5/5)
Dekha Hazaro Dafaa:
Dekha Hazaro Dafaa takes to you a dreamy world. With musical arrangements that are easy on the ears, Arijit Singh and Palak’s vocals work their magic equally well. Again the composition is kept simple and the more focus is in the singing department. (3/5)
Dhal Jaun Main
Jubin Nautiyal is probably the most underrated singer. He once again impresses with his versatility. Manoj Muntashir has done a tremendous job with his lyrics. That song is going to stay here for a long time. A clear winner. (3.5/5)
Jab Tum Hote Ho
A composition that is similar to Aashiqui 2 and Ek Villain. It may appeal to you but there is a lack of originality. (2.5/5)
Tere Bin Yaara - Reprise
It was targetted as a sad version of Tere Sang Yara but we did not get the feel of the song as the tune is pretty much romantic. (2.5/5)
Four music composers were roped for the film but still there is not much variety except first two songs. Ankit Tiwari and Jeet Ganguly are being repetitive as the songs resemblance to their previous works. Overall the album is a winner and will be a delight to romantic/sad music lovers. It will also help Rustom in providing an extra buzz.
